If you would like to learn more about shamanism, here I compiled the most useful books on the subject.
Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy by Mircea Eliade – a bible of shamanism.
Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self by Sandra Ingerman – the simplest and best explanation of the Soul Loss and Sould Retrieval.
Shaman, Healer, Sage by Alberto Villoldo – ancient wisdom and contemporary techniques we can use to help ourselves and others.
The Shamanic Odyssey: Homer, Tolkien, and the Visionary Experience by Robert Tindall – Robert skillfully explores vision quests at the heart of the Odyssey and the fantasy works of J. R. R. Tolkien, examines Odysseus’s encounters with plant divinities, altered consciousness, animal shape-shifting, and sacred topography–all concepts vital to shamanism. A must read!
Cave and Cosmos: Shamanic Encounters with Another Reality by Michael Harner – the newest book from Harner for people interested in spirituality, near-death experiences, shamanism, healing and the nature of reality.
Rumi: The Book of Love: Poems of Ecstasy and Longing – there is no one else quite like Rumi to uplift your Spirit.
The Secret of Light by Walter Russel – this book explains the nature of Light and proves the existence of God by methods and standards acceptable to science and religion alike. It lays a spiritual foundation under the material one of science; one upon which the current New Age movement is built.
The Book of Danu by Patrick Michael Mooney – exploring visual art, poetry, prose and sound, Arthur Danu and Patrick Michael Mooney weave a tale of profound magical transformation that transcends the known limits of modern consciousness and leads you to the Heavenly Realms of your own Divine Imagination.
Six Heart Virtues – the most powerful teaching on living from your heart I have ever encountered. It will change your life – and the life on this planet – if you give it an honest chance.
Institute of HeartMath – the Heart’s Intuitive Intelligence – a path to personal, social and global coherence.
Mind is the Master: The Complete James Allen Treasury by James Allen – whether or not we are conscious of it, our underlying beliefs shape our character, our health and appearance, our circumstances, and our destinies. This book shows how we can elevate our thoughts to create the life we want, lest we drift through life unconscious of the inner forces that keep us mired in failure and frustration. “The Vision that you glorify in your mind, the Ideal that you enthrone in your heart – this you will build your life by, this you will become.”
Psycho-Cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment by Maxwell Maltz – the book that started the self-improvement movement, full of positive wisdom and very helpful insights on the power of thought to shape our reality.
Stop Aging, Start Living by Jeannette Graf – The Revolutionary 2-Week pH Diet That Erases Wrinkles, Beautifies Skin, and Makes You Feel Fantastic. It works, and it’s a must for carnivores such as myself.
Bulletproof: The Cookbook by Dave Asprey – Lose Up to a Pound a Day, Increase Your Energy, and End Food Cravings for Good. I like Dave’s approach to healthy eating by hacking the science of the body.
The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss – An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman. Tim is one of my favorite humans, and if you go to his blog or Youtube channel you will probably understand why. He challenges the status quo and backs it up with latest scientific research, offering himself as a guinea pig most of the time.
